We’re Creatures of Habit

May 25th 2007

I recently heard someone say we’re “creatures of habit.” It’s not the first time I’ve heard this statement, but it is the first time I’ve heard someone follow up the statement with several examples of how we’re creatures of habit.

He pointed how we fold our arms the same way every time.  How we put on our pants – one leg at a time, starting with the same leg each and every time. How we start shaving in the same spot each morning. He went on and on and I kept testing each of the statements and he is right.

I tried folding my arms a different way and crossed my legs a different way. It just was not comfortable. It took me out of my comfort zone, which some times is good, but in this case just didn’t feel comfortable. Truth is, we are creatures of habit. The key to success is creating great habits so we can be successful creatures of habit.
